I'll admit I was leary to hire a sleep coach at first, as I wasn't in love with the idea of sleep training or what I knew of it. Before I signed up to work with Abby, we messaged back and forth and she explained to me that she works with a science based approach and she'd be there along the way. I bit the bullet and signed up to work with Abby to hopefully help myself, my partner and my son get more quality sleep and make naps and night time sleep more restful and relaxing for all of us. As a first time parents, my partner and I didn't know what was normal for our 4 month old in regards to his sleep patterns. Almost every day he'd have false starts, was really dependent on his binky, needed to be rocked to sleep, and most days would wake up at 4 or 5am, and not go back to sleep in his crib and this didn't seem sustainable.

We set up a Zoom call with Abby and we sent over our sleep consultant intake form. I was anxious and still a bit hesitant but as soon as I met with Abby, most of my anxiety went away. She was kind, caring, gentle, a great listener and gave sound advice. She really heard what my partner and I were wanting and offered sustainable solutions. She came up with a sleep plan and we set a date to start. I was nervous and unsure if her sleep plan would work in real life, however I was pleasantly surprised that the small changes Abby suggested were really very successful with our son. The changes we made were not harsh, they were gentle and guided by love. Abby was there every step along the way. She was available for us and checked in via text throughout the first few days of implementing the sleep plan an we had another Zoom call to check in. Abby answered all of our questions with confidence and caring wisdom and I could really tell she had lots of experience with babies. 

Overall, I'm very happy I decided to work with Abby, she was an amazing fit for my family and I'd highly recommend her to anyone. She really cares!

My husband and I had a positive labor and delivery experience thanks to Abby. She has a warm, calming presence and is incredibly resourceful about all things birth.

Abby was super organized in our prenatal meetings and came to each session with an agenda. Her agenda was really comprehensive and it helped us feel prepared with what to expect during labor, delivery, and post partum. Abby listened patiently to all our questions and concerns, and provided us with evidence-based information to help us make informed decisions about our birth plan. She also introduced us to pain management tactics like the TENS unit which helped so much when I was in early labor.

During labor, Abby was a great source of support. She helped me overcome my mental block and fear of pushing and also was actively involved in the pushing process when the nurse and midwife had to attend to other activities.

Thanks to Abby’s support, I had a positive and empowering birth experience. She went above and beyond, and I feel so grateful to have had her by my side. She is truly dedicated, caring, and wonderful to work with!

You often hear about labor and deliver doulas, but less often do you hear about a postpartum doula. As new parents, we found this to be exceptionally helpful while finding our daily rhythm as new parents. As a new mother, I found it to be the extra layer of support and care I needed to feel at peace amongst big change, while also physically healing from delivery.

Abby is nurturing in her approach as a doula, and a resourceful wealth of knowledge. She leans in with compassion, she stays curious, and truly advocates for momma and baby. Abby never pushes agenda, she provides helpful insight and leaves you feeling understood.

She is a treasure to have around and in your corner! You will find yourself parting with a new best friend as well.. ??
